    1. We have this on our kids shelf. I picked it up from the bookstore when I was in seminary. It bores the kids. They are too young to appreciate it but it is full of Canadian nostalgia. Young William has dreams which re-image the nativity in his contemporary Northern setting n the 1930s. These dreams provide different images of the Holy Family and those who welcome or reject them.
